. a look at first lady michelle obama and ann romney, who hopes to call 1600 pennsylvania avenue home soon enough. she was at a rally in virginia yesterday. they had a -- a line along the lines, are we going to be neighbors soon? the crowd loved that. a cool line. it is d-day. >>> first, president obama will spend this election day in chicago where he will watch the returns come in tonight. >> but before heading home he held one last campaign rally in iowa. the state that started it all for him four years ago. with his voice hoarse, appearing to wipe a tear from his eye, the president told a crowd of 20,000 in des moines that real progress has been made over the last four years but there is more work to do. >>> meanwhile, mitt romney wrapped up his final rally of the day before a crowd of 12,000 in manchester, new hampshire, unexpected battleground state. a sentimental journey since romney kicked off the campaign in the state and has been back almost 25 times this year. a lot of time and money for four electoral votes but they're going for everybody. >>> we'll hear from the candidates as r
well, would say -- to say that michelle obama's not heaping praise on governor romney's time, his leadership in massachusetts, isn't that apples and oranges? those aren't the same thing. >> it actually is showing, though, the impact of all the praise that chris christie is heaping upon barack obama and him getting a political benefit from that. >> okay. >> more than just -- actually, probably the better comparison, tamron, is 9/11 after the 9/11 terrorist attacks where democrats and republicans rallied together around george w. bush who had been in the presidency just less than a year after winning a very hotly contested and contentious election. and the country coming together. and we're seeing that to a lesser extent right now play out on the east coast of new jersey and new york. >> thank you so much. i greatly appreciate -- go ahead, i'm sorry, keith, we're almost out of time, i'm sorry. >> i think it also shows the collapse of mitt romney's support mechanism in some ways. not that chris christie's abandoning him, but you also have bob mcdonnell of virginia who praised obama,

urging people to get out to vote, but romney is doing the same. >> i remember michelle obama was telling college kids to register for absentee ballots. >> and at rallies, they had the application in you haven't registered to vote. >> beth, there's the a.p. report that florida democrats have filed a federal lawsuit asking for the early voting period to be extended. that ended yesterday after rick scott refused to extend. . does this have the potential to turn into another election battle like we saw in 2000 which means florida all over again? >> well, i think it depends on how close the race is on election night. if it is as close as we think it might be and it doesn't go obama's way on tuesday night, i think they will definitely see a lot of hack ls being raised by the democrats. the lines yesterday were as slong as five and six hours. and that's partly because they did cut back the number of days available for people to vote in person before election day. >> going from florida to ohio, might we have a similar problem with the provilgs votes if we don't wake up and know what's up? >> it'

in charlotte, but michelle obama spent time there. this race is pretty interesting. when you look at some of the exit polling you're seeing the president do very well among women. i think it was 52% we had in the smaller samples of the state, exit polls there. and we're looking at church attendance, where mitt romney is doing a little better than the president. >> brown: but this was the question, stu, for the president, to hold this coalition, the expanding the vote he was able to do in 2008 nay place like north carolina. and as we were hearing from mark and david earlier, in virginia and other places. >> right. in north carolina, with 60%, he has a fighting chance. i think most of us thought he would be a slight underdog, winning by opinion 3% when he was the insurgent candidate, change candidate, it looked more difficult. but north carolina is really interesting. the president won it it last time. it's a close race now. yet, today, the-- voters in north carolina have elected a republican as governor, pat mccrorp. and two years ago, republicans sweepped to victories in the state house a
, michelle obama would be 5. if you lay these over in ohio, what the republicans believe the obama campaign has done is banked a lot of their high propensity vote who were going to show up anyway. what they're trying to do is call the low propensity voters in ohio and turn out a hire percentage of their high propensity voters on election day. the obama campaign acknowledges some of the folks banking now are probably closer to the high propensity scale. they do believe there'll be enough of a firewall particularly in northern ohio to get that state across the finish line. >> shira, there's a new tampa bay times, bay news, "miami herald" poll mitt romney leading by 6 points. however our poll, the nbc marist poll shows the president leading by two. we're all scratching our heads here. what do you make of these polls and the difference between them? >> well, it's obvious that both campaigns still view it as a battle ground. we can see that by where they put their money. the obama campaign made a renewed effort, i guess you could call it a final push in florida by buying up more ad time there. i

into the personal worlds of the twitter-verse. take a look here. michelle obama tweeting this, four more years. that was at a campaign stop in davenport, iowa. and this from garrett jackson, mitt romney's body man. ann romney talking to overflow crowds in fairfax, virginia. and another from his body man. eric draper, take a look. that's a grandpa hugging his grandson. so much more to see here on twitter. we'll be taking a look at it all morning, all day long here, george. >> that's a great shot. thank you. >> that was. >> that was fantastic. >>> other photos coming in right now. vice president joe biden voting in the state of delaware. there he is, walking into the polling place with his wife, dr. jill biden. right behind him his son beau biden, attorney general of delaware. they are going to vote right now. delaware a safe state for the president and joe biden. they're go being to make up the majority of voters. both candidates campaigning hard for their support. let's look at their prospects with our team of powerhouse women. initial kol wallace nicole wallace, veteran of the bush campaign.
there and you see michelle obama and dr. jill biden greeting each other as well. what struck most of us in the news room about this picture was this really doesn't seem to be a scene of jubilation. it seems to be a scene of relief, heavy sigh, if you will, felt in that room at the moment that the president understood he had won four more years at the whitehouse. let's go back to mccormick place as we are with the crowd there waiting for the president to step out. bob. >> well, you know, i've covered a lot of campaigns in my time and it's always more fun to be with the winner than it is with the loser. there's nothing quite as sad or as sad a places to be, to be in the campaign headquarters of the guy that lost. it's just tough on everybody. >> i think that's why you saw the whitehouse particularly chose that picture. they did not want to look like they are spiking the ball. and even gave axelrod an interview they did not want to appear they were celebrating too early and not tush sor to be sof gracious. having fought campaigns before people know what it's like to be on the losing side.
. i seem to get an e-mail from barack obama, michelle, joe biden has been texting me lately. there's no escape. another interesting thing, margaret, is i got an unsolicited anti-obama text message from an anonymous source and lots of people in the washington area got there. mine said "seniors can't afford tour four more years of obama budget cuts to medicare." that's arguable, they're not really cuts, but point is you don't know where it's coming from. a virginia company is behind it. its conservative clients are distancing themselvess from having anything to do with these anonymous text messages. >> warner: are the campaigns themselves using these methods to get out negative messages at this stage or are they all positive? >> they are not all positive by any means. the campaigns have web site which is n which president obama's people attack mitt romney and vice versa. so it's a mix of trying to identify your supporters and get them to register, get them to tell their friends, get them to tell people on facebook and also driving negative messages, sometimings snarky twitter-type me
't use the president there but they sent michelle obama there a lot, she was just there on monday and bill clinton was in north carolina as well. >> we must stress it's early in the evening and we're operating on early figures. but this could be the first real surprise of the evening, if the trend continues down there. >> pelley: the strength of the president in north carolina. >> yes. >> pelley: thank you, bob. let's have a quick look at the presidential race map as it stands just now. the red states we are projecting for mitt romney, the blue states for president obama. but as bob just said, it is early yet. cbs news coverage of election night, 2012, will continue? just a moment. >> pelley: breaking news, cbs news projects that president obama will carry the state of new jersey. and its 14 electoral votes. with that let's have a look at the presidential race map. mr. obama has 78 electoral votes, mitt romney 82 electoral votes at this early stage on the way to 270 needed to win. anthony mason has been looking at some of the swing states where we don't have enough information
things to watch tonight and through the weekend, first lady, michelle obama, joe biden, also big ohio presence this weekend. president clinton on the democratic side doing a lot of campaigning. and tonight in ohio near cincinnati, romney, ryan, their families, and all their major surrogates, minus chris christie are going to be doing a big rally, john mccain, marco rubio, rob portman, one big rally in ohio and then spreading out. that's going to be a big event. and major surrogate action on both sides, nobody believing anything, as we like to say, on the field. >> and very interesting last thing about romney, two stops in new hampshire within the last three days, which is kind of fascinating given -- i mean, he's closing his campaign in new hampshire, but he's also going there on saturday. interesting that they think that those, what, five or four electoral votes could be really important for them. >> one other big piece of news this morning, president obama picked up the endorsement yesterday of new york city mayor michael bloomberg, citing superstorm sandy. the independent mayor wro
. at any rate -- >> he said none of the above. [ laughter ] >> bill: no, that's what michelle obama said this year. and heather during the break i saw on another channel here, they had the little tease will young people turn out the vote this year? so that is a big question about this campaign. what's the answer? >> it is a question we hear every time. of course, we know young people care. this generation, they're not like their older brothers and sisters of gen-x. they actually really care. they're not the slackers. i'll take the blame. the question is will they vote this time around. we've been out on the ground. we've registered over a million voters. >> bill: whoa! >> state by state. they're really engaged when you talk to them. i think the question is how many people were we able to reach. how many people were at the campaign table able to reach. was enough invested in turning out the young people. >> bill: where did you register the one million voters? >> college campuses, high school classrooms concerts an
that of the service of her sons. dr. biden has co-sponsored with our first lady, michelle obama, the national initiative joining forces, providing support and expanding opportunities for veterans and active duty personnel and their families. that exemplifies the commitment to those who serve and who have served, and the strength of character of jill biden and of her home, the first state. i know delaware's citizens will honor their state's namesake, follow her as she comes to life in a few years and embrace those who sail in her for decades to come as she in turn honors the first state's legacy, and she sails the seas in defense of our nation and upholding her state's motto: freedom and liberty. and the navy motto, forever courageous. now, it's my happy privilege to introduce the sponsor of the uss delaware, dr. jill biden. [applause] >> thank you, secretary maybus, for that kind introduction. this is a very exciting day. as a proud military mom and a very delawarean, i am honored to sponsor the uss delaware. one of the best parts of serving as second lady is that i have the opportunity to me
presidential race, michelle. 85% has gone to support romney or to oppose president obama. 85% of the money is going against the president, yet he's edging ahead. >> it has been remarkable how much money has been spent and how much influence the outside groups have had. so it's going to be interesting to see the morning after this whether this is seen as like the cycle of the super pac triumph and a new way that these things are going to run or if obama pulls it out, whether this is going to be seen as a lot of wasted money on the part of folks like sheldon adelson. >> what is the danger of this, richard, in terms of this all of this money? or will it be rethought if, in fact, the president is deterred? >> well, a lot of promises were made to those super wealthy people that it would be affected. they are going to have to go back after all, most of them are super wealthy people and ask were those promises ever delivered? never mind about who wins. every dollar that they have spent has gone less far than the campaign. they don't get the same ad rates. so a dollar of the koch money is not the
is about more than just obama. it's about your mama. joining me now is journalist and former judge, katherine cryer and michelle cottle. thank you all for being here. >> thank you, reverend. >> michelle, let me go to you first. this is no normal election. isn't this a huge decision point for this country? >> it is. we're always talking about this is the most important election in our history but there's at least one item on the table and that's the health care plan and the fate of it is going to depend heavily on who ends up in the white house and we've talked about elections are big ideas and you have big choices to make and i think it's notable that mitt romney has spent a great deal of time trying to cover up what his big ideas are, trying to align the differences and step away from the severe conservatism he was peddling earlier towards a more moderate version where he wouldn't dream of dealing with abortion legislation or giving tax breaks to the wealthy, that sort of thing. >> yeah. but, dana, they have supported massive cuts, to her point, cuts to government despite taking a
day. governor romney continues on the stump, while president obama campaigns in three states today while also keeping an eye on recovering from sandy. >>> plus, tea party favorite and former presidential candidate michele bachmann is fighting for her political life. details, next. you're watching "early today." >> announcer: brought to you by the makers of centrum men and women. have you taken the most complete multivitamin today? >>> well, the campaign clock is ticking, and with just about 120 hours to go until election day, the polls show the candidates are still neck and neck. nbc's tracie potts has all the details for us from washington. tracie, good morning. >> reporter: lynn, reuters ipsos, one of the latest national polls out there, gives president obama just a one percentage point lead nationally. that is a tie as the president heads back out today to speak with voters. president obama's back on the campaign trail. polls show him up by six in iowa, two in wisconsin and two in new hampshire, but this week he's focused on new jersey. >> we are not going to tolerate red tape,
. >> michelle, this is a headline from the "wall street journal" this week and i'm going to put it up here. election may hinge on latino turnout here. barack obama's re-election hopes hinge more than any previous presidential contender on the latino vote. if the president is re-elected, michelle how much of a role will that specific voting bloc play? >> it's going to have a huge impact on the election in just a few days. latinos are the largest growing minority in the united states. they are also, you know, 16% of the electorate. they are particularly important in all of the battleground states we're talking about. nevada, colorado, virginia, in particular and we have seen that there's been so much damage to the republican brand this year not only with, you know, with voting blocs such as women and african-americans but particularly with latinos who by the way most people will remember voted in huge numbers for george bush in 2000. he received 35% of the hispanic vote in 2000. and in 2012 latinos no longer feel at home within the republican party of today. so barack obama, you can see it's
